Fall Uniform




For a girl who predominately wears black and various shades of grey, you would think that owning a leather jacket would be a given. For me though, leather was just one of those materials that was only reserved for bags and shoes--never for pants and most definitely never for jackets. As much as I had yearned for one, I lived my ideas of owning and styling a leather jacket vicariously on Pinterest. Every time I would try one that was ill-fitting or just didn't look right, I decided it was for the best. I mean who needs a leather jacket when it was still 90 degrees in Los Angeles in October anyway? Oh how very wrong I was.

Finding this jacket was love at first sight. I just knew that this was finally the one. It looked as good on the hangar as it looked on. As fate would have it, it looked perfect with the outfit that I was already wearing that day. The gloomy weather was just calling for me to wear it out of the store, and so I did. As we romped around Abbott Kinney and soaked in the extra hour from the end of Daylight Savings, I realized that basics and classics were deemed as those for a reason and never will I question them.

  9. It is so hard to find the right leather jacket. I bought a faux one last year and I think it's too puffy and stiff... Those boots are awesome! Glad to see a post from you. :)

  14. I'm glad you finally found a nice leather jacket. Honestly, I would still wear mine in the LA heat, even if I was sweating underneath it. Who ever said that it's practical to be fashionable. Haha! I'm also really digging those boots! The detail on them is amazing.

  20. Leather jackets are incredible. I love them dearly but for me they are incredible difficult to buy because I have such a hard time finding a cut that I like on myself. But when you find the one, you never want it off.

  32. A personal opinion, except for the shoes, everything's just fine for going to work. Except for the shoes because they look like you're wearing jewels on the shoes. They don't look bad at all, they're nice, but not my style. Again, personal.

    I agree that sometimes you don't understand how something can be such a popular 'basic' until you land on the perfect one yourself! I'm so glad I have my leather jackets, they are great for winter here.
